World of Treasures Party

Today, Cielo over at The House in the Roses is hosting a World of Treasures Party, I thought I'd show you a few of mine

this little monk music box reminded me of my husband because they look Asian...and he could eat Chinese food EVERY SINGLE DAY OF THE WEEK!...me, not so much!
These are probably one of my favorite things out of everything I own. If you've ever bid on anything on eBay, then you know what it's like praying you don't get outbid for something you really want...this was mine - Inarco angels, and I just think they're just precious.
A few miscellaneous items that I've found along the way....
Up close...



And I found this Frosty last week for $2 at Goodwill. I'm a sucker for a sweet face!

The little girl with the present (2nd from right) is one of the few decorations I had as a child. I only knew my paternal grandfather, and he died on December 1st when I was 6 years old. The little planter on the left was received at that time. (click on photo to enlarge)


Thanks for stopping by to look at some of my favorite things today! Be sure to visit the rest of the party participants at http://houseinroses.blogspot.com/! Have a great Sunday!

Oh wow Tar! I covet your figurines! ;o) We have a couple of the same angels & I think one of teh Santas. You really have an awesome collection. They are indeed treasures!

What wonderful collections you've shared. I am so fond of your tumbling Santa!! I've got some F&F tumbling angels.

That little angel with present that was yours when you were little is adorable!

Funny, but I thought you were saying that MR. Tar was Asian.....

Big TX Hugs,
